Site logo Devel without a Cause

This is my personal blog, where I rant, rave, complain, and exclaim about everything that no one asked my opinion of.

I mostly post about software development, of the frontend web variety in particular, but I will talk about anything I am interested in. This ranges from programming languages, to game design, to hot takes about the latest JavaScript framework.

Be social! Reach out to send your thoughts, feedback, praise, and (well-reasoned) rants.

    - Can programming languages design better constructors? Let us explore modern constructor design, its flaws, and some potential improvements.
